@Denny Jump: Wonderful and kind feedback; thank you very much !

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Wonderful sense of open space in the frame with your composition. Special as well because of the countless footprints going in all directions!

@Stephen: This is a popular sledding hill near my home in Elora, as you can see from the imprints. Thanks a lot, Stephen.

Evelyne Dubos from Burkina Faso

Great framing and minimalist compo. The rendering of snow is also very good !

@Evelyne Dubos: Something about winter makes me think in minimalist terms. The trees are stripped down and everything is more exposed. Thanks very much.

Olivier P from Tlse, France

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

They seem to be on another planet ! excellent minimalist composition with a great sense of space !

@Anna Cherer: I zoomed in on them and thought afterward that I should have shot a few frames to show more expanse around the figures, too. Thanks a lot, Anna.

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

The perfect sledging slope :) Nicely caught

@grouser: Very popular with the kids, and safe as well due to its levelling off in a big sports field.

@Existence Artistique: Merci.

franz from Baden, Austria

An activity I'm all too familiar with! Though not a 'Mom', I do this with my grandchildren, willingly, and enjoying every moment of it. (If there's enough snow, that is ... ;-)
That said, I love your 'economical' composition and the textured snow!

20 Jan 2018 1:53pm

@franz: Yes, it is certainly not the exclusive domain or activity of Moms. Even stepdads like me have been known to go up the sledding hills ;) You are a fantastic grandfather, franz, and an appreciated photographer !

Martine Libouton from Bousval, Belgium

J'aime ta composition !

@Ruthiebear: Thanks so much, Ruthie.

Devi from Chennai, India

superb shot !! It pains my heart that the Mom has to go such a vast distance with these tiny tots !! The shot makes it appear so !

20 Jan 2018 3:33pm

@Devi: Thanks a lot, Devi. Don't worry about those long climbs up the hill, because they all have such fun sliding back down again. Pure Canadian joy !

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Ah, a dedicated mom introducing her kids to winter fun. Looks like a super place for sledding. Beautifully composed image.

@k@: I love to write creatively, and maybe I will use your wonderful idea ! Thanks a lot, Karine.

Joyce from Montana, United States

Love it. Just me, the kids, the sled and the snow. A dog would have been fun punctuation.
